Drip Edge Styles


Im coming behind this other contrator cleaning up their "mishaps" shall we say. I noticed that on this new roof they put on for this guy many wrong doings. Anyway, i noticed the d edge they used on asphalt shingles was the L style with out that extra 1/2" kick off. Ive never seen ppl use this style with asphalt shingles. To me its wrong, n the d edge should have that extended lip to get water away from fascia. There are no gutters on the house either. Has anyone else ever used the L style with asphalt shingles? To me its spelling disaster.
Plus, they gonna have to redo it anyways due to not over lapping ANY of the joints, rather leaving 2" spaces. Im interested in your opinions on this.

Re: Drip Edge Styles


Lots of places don't even use drip edge , but rather let the shingles hang over thus making a drip edge. Some guys here will use gutter apron, L style, I don't care for it , but if shingles over hang it works. Personally I like to see D style on a house and not the cheap 1" face stuff neither.

Re: Drip Edge Styles


We have the metal flashing go on top of a 1x2 to keep it out 3/4" to keep the water off the facisha

Re: Drip Edge Styles


Seldom see drip flashing around here. Shingles just hang past a few inches and eventually bend into the gutter.

Re: Drip Edge Styles


Seen it never used it. We use drip edge with the kick out always. Just put the new stuff right over the old if it's flat. It will be fine. We hang the shingles over an inch as well.

Re: Drip Edge Styles


We always use L flash, but with the small kick at the bottom. I assume that what you are talking about?

Standard isn't much use especially on gable ends, but it depends on where you are.

Re: Drip Edge Styles


they use that turned in kick edge around here .must be a point . supplier told me to keep bugs out ,which as i say it out loud that doesn't make alot of sense .
the little 1x2 adds another reveal which looks good and also seems to me would help protect facia better .
OP can you post pictures .really helps grasp what your saying . sounds like your going to do something for sure .

That stupid little shadow board as is normally called, 1x2 , is a pain in the backside when you are covering the fascia with metal. Same goes for when they use crown molding for that board.

Yes all covered. I even have cover the crown molding with metal that looks like the molding. Most people don't like or have time to paint anymore.

Re: Drip Edge Styles


Sounds like a HO fisher for an excuse to come down on the contractor.
Its a good idea and recently added to the code but not a regularly used thing and certainly doesnt spell disaster

Yes its in the IRC 2015 and NJ didnt cancel it but NJ stopped requiring permits for Roofs. This puts knowledgeable contractors at the disadvantage with lack of enforcement.

I always wonder if "in the event" an insurance claim is made for blow off shingles will the insurance company deny it for not meeting the code.
